the place. let's take a look outside right now. not bad across the area right now, but we did have showers and it's fairly cold outside, and every time you get cold rain it's never fun. temperatures today, the record high -- or actually the high temperature for the record, 42 degrees. that was set two hours ago. the low this morning was 25. today will go down below average, so it's the third day in a row below average, and we have only seen it one other time this winter, and most of the time we are above average. and winds are out of the south-southwest at 14 miles per hour. and take a look at the numbers. 38 right now in martins burg, and 33 in culpepper. many of these numbers have stayed where they were at 6:00 or risen since then, and we may see the numbers rise more. closer to the metro area, dulles
at 39. fairfax county and prince georges county coming in at 39, and 41 at college park. and shower activity in through southern maryland, and st. mary's county and back to north montgomery county and damascus, and in through frederick county and back to the west and west virginia and western portions of virginia, and we're going to continue to see showers throughout the rest of the night. you can continue to see how these moved on through here. and you will see them move through overnight and through the morning hours tomorrow. you want to take umbrellas. do you want it to get warmer? a lot saying yes and a lot saying no. 58 in atlanta today. and nearly 70 in st. louis and memphis. that's the warm air that will make it into our region tomorrow. and many areas will hit the 63 mark once again. high pressure has produced the

areas could get in the upper 50s to lower 60s across the area. mild, rather windy with the heaviest rain staying to the north. in the next couple days, here comes the roller coaster again, and a possible flury, 38 on friday, and then right back up again towards the weekend, and then into next week as we move back into the 40s and 50s by the end of the weekend. so 60s, 30s, 40s, 50s -- back, you know. >> it's like tepid, not cold, not hot. still ahead tonight. a fast-food chain is delivering in our

eight. john wall to mcgee, off the backboard and back to himself. wizards are down by eight. flip saunders not happy at all, so he sat mcgee the final nine minutes of the game. later in the game, wall turns it over, and part of a 25-8 rockets run. and houston wins it. the wizards drop to 1-12 on the season. after the game, the talk was about the show boating. >> maybe i am too old school, but save that for the all-star game, not during a game. we have some players that look for highlights rather than substance. >> apparently if you get a fast break and throw off the backboard, and you are not supposed to do stuff like that. i feel like i am trying to get the team hyped and make a good
play, but i guess not. >> and wendy rieger said who cares. >> he is making a basket. you pull him before you win? come on, i don't care as long as you get it in, i don't care how you show boat. >> well, that's the point, no show boating. win the game. and then the 5'7" point guard is one of the top 25 players. here he goes. 5'7", and all he does is get buckets. hanging in the lane. and then in the second, watch this crossover.
this is just filthy. and there he goes. 36 points, and patterson led nearly the entire game. and down by one with nine seconds to go. charles glover, the jumper off the mark and kicked out to jenkins, and he got it. that's the game winner! the buzzer beater to win the game. what a performance there for jenkins. he had 27 on the night. also tonight, third quarter, down 15 with the ball. and then a turnover, and cumberlander converts. and then look at this. a big old left-hander for mormon. coolidge defends the home court and wins 62-55. and college park, the maryland women hosting virginia. this young lady having a good
time. second half, terps up by three. and then hawkins has tunnel vision, going coast-to-coast, eight points for hawkins, and maryland leads 45-42. terps up by seven now. and then draining the jumper, she had a game high of 20. and they are now 16-1 on the season. you guys like that nickname, crime stopper. >> yeah.
